Why is Council funding this training?

Research shows that the COVID-19 pandemic and associated restrictions have had a significant mental health impact on our communities. As part of Yarra Ranges Council's COVID-19 Social Recovery Plan, Council will fund the roll-out of up to 10 MHFA courses for community members during 2021 to increase the capacity of Yarra Ranges community members to provide mental health first aid to people within their networks experiencing mental health problems.
